Partnership Programs

In July 2019 the Reher Center hosted the students of the Rondout Neighborhood Center’s Read and Write Program for a four-day education pilot that explored the themes of immigration, community, work and bread in our neighborhood, past and present. Photo Credit: Veronica Fassbender.

This program was funded in part by the City of Kingston’s 2019 Participatory Budgeting allocation.

In May 2019, the Reher Center partnered with Bread Alone Bakery and BOCES Career & Tech's Culinary Program for a three day program. Students made challah and rye breads and created a variety of spice blends for flavored butters that were inspired by an in-depth exploration of foodways of their own immigrant backgrounds. Students donated the bread and butters they made and volunteered to distribute samples during the Kingston Multicultural Festival.
